Hi there, my name is Kevin and I grew up around cameras. My grandad had a huge selection of medium format and standard 35mm SLR cameras, my Dad also loved his cameras with a kit comprising mainly of Yashica bodies and Zeiss lenses.
Living in Farnborough, Hampshire, (on the flight path for the Farnborough International Airshow) I soon developed (get it?) a taste for taking pictures of the planes. Using one of my Dad's cameras I'd copy him and from 12 onwards each year there was an airshow I'd be there.
Since then I've built up my own kit of Contax/Zeiss 35mm SLR's and added a Canon Eos500D into the mix as well. Though I still photograph planes at any given opportunity, my subject matter has shifted more to landscape, wildlife, and weddings. My equipment has recently seen an upgrade from Eos500D body to Eos70D body, with some new lenses too. All in the efforts of further improving.
Photography for me is an escape from reality and it gives me the chance to see the world from many different perspectives
